My Brother, Gone Too Soon
Tanner, we will miss you so much.
We all love you and wish you could come back.
Oh, brother of mine,
Why did you have to go?
We all miss you so much,
I'm sure your heart still glows.
You left so suddenly,
To soon for all of us.
Never again will we hug,
In family trust.
You were so young,
And still so healthy.
God had other plans,
A prayer is now said, silently.
I can't express my sorrow,
Or anyone else's, for that matter.
In your death we will mourn,
Even years after.
If only you could be here,
To come back to stay,
'Tanner, we love you! '
Everyone would say.
Irreversible is death,
An unfortunate truth.
You went to heaven,
Still in your youth.
